Pinpointing causal genes for spermatogenic failure (SpF) on the Y chromosome has been an ever daunting challenge with setbacks during the past decade. Since complex diseases result from the interaction of multiple genes and also display considerable missing heritability, network analysis is more likely to explicate an etiological molecular basis. We therefore took a network medicine approach by integrating interactome (protein–protein interaction (PPI)) and transcriptome data to reconstruct a Y-centric SpF network. Two sets of seed genes (Y genes and SpF-implicated genes (SIGs)) were used for network reconstruction. Since no PPI was observed among Y genes, we identified their common immediate interactors. Interestingly, 81
